On the system where you want data restored, you need to launch the client.
Which  OS is used on the system where you want data restored.
Have a look at the Amanda wiki, they have different guides/examples.

What tape device do you have?
How many tapes do you have?

http://wiki.zmanda.com/index.php/Tapecycle
Includes links to the two other items.

How much data are you backing up? Look at the report of the successful backup.

How much storage do you have allocated for vtape?
The issue/error is caused by lack of resources.
I.e. Your allocation

Ok, 1TB 90GB backup
Using the link provided to http://wiki.zmanda.com/index.php/How_To:Set_Up_Virtual_Tapes
Do you want vtape in the size of your backup, or do you want to use smaller vtapes spanning multiple location?
tapelength=90GB
Tapecycles=10

or
tapelength=30GB
tapecycles=30

The configuration options can be seen in the guide

With the current data it will be approximately 30 days. The oldest tape will be overwritten on the 31st day.
 However, if your backup data grows, where two tapes are consumed for each backup, the 1st tape will be overwritten sooner.

I am not sure what it is you are trying to do.  Once you define the location/s for the vtapes and the cycle, the oldest "tape" is overwriten by the new backup.
If you want to continually switch a 1TB disk i.e. 20-30 tapecycles, replace the drive, you would need to define the larger cycle i.e. 60 tapecycles, where 0-29 will be on disk one and 30-59 will be on disk two.

Please look at the vtape help page link.  It discusses how to use a "tape changer" which is what presumably your question is about with the chg-disk.
